Wes Anderson + literary

The importance of the books, of the narrators, of the narrative, in the movies made by Wes Anderson are exploded in this beautiful video made by the people from The A to Z Review. Enjoy!

Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach ask you to help finish Orson Welles’ final film

Frequent collaborators Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach have made a video together for a good cause: to help Frank Marshall and Peter Bogdanovich get the lated release of Orson Wells’ final film, called “The other side of the wind”, a real thing. The project they are supporting is on Indiegogo and you can go there to read more about it and, if you’d like, donate money.

If you haven’t heard of The Other Side of The Wind, it was supposed to be Orson Welles’ comeback title. After years spent working in Europe, Orson returned to Hollywood intent on making a film about filmmaking, but managed to hit an obstacle at every turn and, although he finished shooting it, he did not finish editing and the film was never released.


Bar Luce, a place designed by Wes Anderson

I’m sure that there are a lot of people who would love to live in a Wes Anderson’s movie. Unfortunately, this is not possible. But we have something close to it. And it’s called Bar Luce and it’s part of the Fondazione Prada, in Milan.

“While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in”, said the designer Wes Anderson, who created a place as beautiful as his movies, but tridimensional.

The bar opened on on May 9 and if you can’t go there yet, I recommend you to see the pictures under the tag #BarLuce on instagram (and if you visit it, take a picture!).

You can visit Bar Luce, Largo Isarco, 2, 20135 Milano, Italy

(Yes, what you see there it’s a Zissou flipper!)


Wes Anderson joins Noah Baumbach and Ben Stiller at movie premiere

Wes Anderson was present at the premiere of Noah Baumbach’s latest film “While we’re young“. According to Variety.com:

“While We’re Young” was introduced by A24’s David Fenkel, and the after-party was held at Lexington Brass. Wes Anderson, who stayed through the film’s end credits and took selfies with fans waiting outside, walked over with Vogue editor Grace Coddington. The “Moonrise Kingdom” director was later seen chatting in a dark corner of the party with another powerful New York filmmaker — Spike Jonze (who said he still hadn’t seen the “Girls” finale, on which he had a cameo as a music executive).

In the pictures we can also him reunited with Ben Stiller, who stars in Baumbach’s movie.

The Cocktails of Wes Anderson

One of the Paste Magazine bloggers, Laurie Delk, just published an article with a few drinks inspired in Wes Anderson movies.

From Steve Zissou’s simple Campari on the rocks in The Life Aquatic to the ubiquitous Bloody Mary, enjoyed by both Richie in The Royal Tenenbaums and Natalie Portman’s unnamed character in the short Hotel Chevalier, a character’s choice in drink tells us a little more about who they are, via Mr. Anderson.

See it here.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I’m going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it.
